Axanar 22: The Geekiest Year Ever / by Trek fm

Axanar Directors Roundtable: Part 2.

From script to screen, making an independent film is an intricate process involving many hats—both creative and administrative. In this episode of the official Axanar podcast, we conclude our two-part roundtable with Robert Meyer Burnett, Alec Peters, Christian Gossett, and Charles de Lauzirika. This time they discuss their work beyond Star Trek, their journey from childhood fan to pro, how they retain that sense of wonder, and more.

In our news segment we get an update on construction in Ares Studios, the status of the Axanar script (it’s locked!), the next Kickstarter, and plans for WonderCon.
